City Spring was founded by Jon Price.
Situated within Edgbaston Birmingham, Jon has been in practice since 2002. In this time he has worked with many other acupuncturists and health professionals. He continues to lead and collaborate with a team of practitioners working out of the rooms at City Spring.
Acupuncture practised in its traditional format, with an appreciation of the complexities of life and the struggles we all under go is what City Spring is about.

At City Spring we practice traditional acupuncture .
Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. Acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other.
Traditional acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the balance of your body’s Qi, or vital energy.
We may also use a technique called moxabustion which is applying a smouldering herb to the same points in order to warm deeper inside the body. (If you wonder why this is included, just think about aching muscles and how good a simple hot water bottle may feel when applied to those muscles).
Other techniques like cupping or Gua Sha may be used.
Additionally we may show you some simple Qigong exercises if they are appropriate for you and why you are seeking treatment.
